days after that briefing, u.s. ambassador to the u.n. susan rice took to five different sunday talk shows to say it was not a planned attack. it was another three days after that, before any senior u.s. official publicly stated that the benghazi incident was indeed a terrorist attack. >> americans deserve the truth on what happened. and so i think what you're going to find is these bits and pieces are going to come out. again i think we're both troubled by some of the things we saw and unfold. >> reporter: the house oversight committee hearing on the benghazi attacks gets underway tomorrow at noon. a lot of people will be watching, martha. martha: there is sort of a drip, drip, drip effect to this story. and some lawmakers are still questioning what the administration itself knew before these attacks. >> reporter: you know congressman jason chaffetz of utah just returned from benghazi. early this morning on fox he pointed out some obvious warning signs that preceded the attack. >> twice in the lead-up to their attack on 9/11, our compound in benghazi was bombed. twice the british am
. and the second there was so many warnings that they felt that an attack on the u.s. consulate by terrorists seemed a foregone conclusion. allison. alisyn: that's right. given all the new information that came to light at the hearings what is the fallout now for the state department? >> reporter: one theme really dominated at the hearing. initial washington was so preoccupied reducing number of american personnel at the consulate and replacing with libyan guards even after a series of attacks on diplomats. for diplomats and security personnel on the ground a terrorist strike on the consulate seemed inevitable given escalating violence especially violence targeting western sites even in benghazi. requests for more security were ultimately rejected and lost in the bureaucratic nightmare of political washington. >> it is not the hardships. not the gunfire. it's not the threats. it is dealing and fighting against the people, programs and personnel who are supposed to be supporting me and i added it by saying for me, the taliban is on the inside of the building. >> reporter: but yesterday ambassa
in nebraska. a hope for former revival of former u.s. senator bob kerrey, gives a republicans a chance to win a democratic seat at least by the polls. deb fisher enjoys a solid lied over kerrey with less than two weeks to go. republicans need to net four seats to take control of the senate if president obama is reelected and three if governor romney wins. bill: governor romney is making what is considered a closing argument on the american economy. you will see that live this afternoon in iowa. mary katharine ham, editor-at-large for, a juan williams, political analyst are both fox news contributors. what is happening you two? bono is u2 but you are bigger than bono. romney will say, 23 million people are out of work or looking for work. 4 million people on food stamps up from four years ago. he will argue 16 trillion of debt in the past four years. that is his closing argument, right? >> his argument beyond that i have a plan. he will go over the five-point plan. he will make it very explicit. his main issue hey check out the last four years we're five trillion more in debt than w

of the senate intelligence committee telling fox the suspect is in custody but significantly u.s. authorities are being denied access to this member of the group ansar al-sharia. >> we don't know very much about him because we have not been able to have access to him. that is one of the problems with the policy of this administration. the turks did take possession of him but they weren't prepared to let us have any access and didn't and now that they have turned him over to the tunisia i hope maybe eventually we will. but at this point in time we've not had access. >> reporter: the suspect is described to fox, tunisia ann by. he is described as a suspected participant and not a commander of this assault. again he is someone put at the scene based on his comments to a very close circle of contacts. bill: we're trying to piece all this together, catherine, terrific reporting as well as rest of our team in washington. list cheney reacts to this in 10 minutes. thanks, catherine. martha: big, big, story. back on the election front. there are 13 days to go. it is truly a sprint to the finish at thi
that the president offered on the u.s. intelligence community and the inherent chaotic nature of the event itself. >> as the intelligence community has now said their assessment now over the last month changed. but everyone in the administration was trying to give information to the best of their ability at the time with the caveat that more was likely to be learned and that there would be most likely changes. so the fog of war, the confusion that you get in any kind of combat situation, remember this was an attack that went on for hours. >> reporter: one of clinton's assistant secretaries testified last week she was following the events in dpauz gauze in realtime, -- benghazi in realtime, bill. bill: u.s. ambassador susan rice is also talking. what is she saying, james? >> reporter: was ambassador rice's appearance on five sunday shows on september the 16th asserting benghazi was a protest over anti-islam film gone awry and not a premeditate attack, led critics of the administration to cry cover-up. she too effectively blamed the tell fence community for her false statements. she adamantly denie
they could look to to assist the federal prison system and ultimately move guantanamo detainees in the u.s.? >> there is federal law that prohibits that from happening. previous administration and this administration looked at a variety of options in the united states or housing guantanamo detainees and obviously a military brig facility would make some sense if they were to make that move. but the american public is against this move left and right. the senate, house democrats, house republicans, democrats and republicans on both sides are against it. there is a federal law that prohibits it. so unless the administration wants to flout federal law, it's not going to happen. bill: 12 minutes before the hour. florida senator marco rubio says tonight's first presidential debate will come down to just one thing. and all this talk and all this preparation. one thing. we'll bring you his answer on that. jamie: he's known for not holding back. but republicans are seizing on a new comment from vice president joe biden. we'll have a fair and balanced debate on what he said straight ahead. >> this

in a variety of different contexts that the obama policy in the middle east has left the u.s.-israel relationship in at that timers and has left israel in a much less secure position. and i think this is a very important issue going forward, both in terms of the continuing global war against terrorism and the existential threat posed to israel by the iranian nuclear weapons program where again governor romney in tempered and restrained language explained how obama had failed these past four years to do much of anything to slow iran down. martha: there was that moment, let me stay with john bolton for a second. there was a moment where bob schiefer asked what would you do if you got the call that said israel had attacked had attacked iran? what do you think of that mitt romney's answer, saying that wouldn't happen, they would be consulted about it first? >> i think the change in the relationship between israel and the united states under a romney presidency would mean that we wouldn't be surprised. i think the real risk is, that under obama, that israel feels so isolated, feel

'll move away from the storm for a moment here now. there are new reports from u.s. intelligence sources on the deadly attack in libya. fox news reports a terror suspect held in custody in tunisia has been identified by way of surveillance video from the benghazi compound the night of the attack. but the u.s. has not been able to talk to him. randy forbes, republican from virginia, member of the house armed services committee, and sir good morning to you. >> good morning, bill. bill: how does it impede an investigation if you can't talk to the only man that we believe is under arrest at the moment, or being held? >> well, bill u know that is hugely important to this investigation, and it plays into part of a larger narrative that we've been asking for several weeks now, and one of them is, did we have the military assets that we needed to defend u.s. interest? if not, why? was it because of all these defense cuts? secondly if we had them why didn't we use them? because they were there and available. and the third one is why are we having this massive attempt to try to cover this up, begi
. this is the first u.s. ambassador that has been killed since 1979. susan rice came on this show and five other and gave the american people a story that turned out not to be true and you're saying we shouldn't discuss this? that we should wait for the investigation to be completed? >> no, no. >> that's what you just said. >> that is, chris calm down. that is obviously not what i'm saying. i just -- >> you wait a minute. we should follow the lead of chris stevens -- >> i'm happy, i'm happy to discuss it with you. >> talking about what he said day after the attacks. nobody is criticizing him what is he saying now except except the obama campaign. >> well, i'm just telling you that from the beginning of this issue, before any facts were known he was cravenly trying to exploit it. look, that is politics. i understand that chris. i understand the whole deal. we're in the last three weeks of a campaign. of course governor romney will be out there talking about this issue but the president's concern, the president's concern is to get to the bottom of it. to bring terrorists to justice. martha: well,

time in recent history that the united states support of israel has become an issue in the u.s. presidential election. the prime minister's office this morning flatly refused to comment on or off the record specifically about the debate but last month they made no qualms about their annoyance with the president of the united states for denying that meeting request with the prime minister of israel at the united nations. and during the debate, vice president biden had to spend a lot of time defending the administration's record with israel. >> they're bebe has been my friend for 39 years. the president met with bebe a dozen times. he spoken to bebe net yaw hue has much as he spleen to anybody. >> the prime minister has made no public stance who he would prefer to see as president but privately made it very clear that he would view a president romney as a much better friend to israel than a second-term president obama, but that is not necessarily a universal feeling here in israel. jamie, there has been a lot of pundits and a also a lot of political figures here in israel who cri

. the attack will not break the bonds between u.s. and libya. fought back against the attackers. you could make a clear argument here, governor, i think that's what you're doing, how far the president went that day. >> absolutely. he did not say that the attack in benghazi was an act of terror. in fact, five days later his u.n. secretary, ambassador, was out on every major news channel on the sunday talk shows, saying it was a consequence of this video that no one ever saw. by the way, bill, step back for a minute here. when did those attacks owe your? -- occur. on september 11th. 90% of the americans when they understood that our facility had been attacked and your ambassador killed on september 11th, woo not think it is some spontaneous uprising but it's a terrorist attack. but since day one this administration has always looked to find what is it we have done wrong to provoke this action by others from the beginning of his global apology tour, statement after the embassy in egypt was attacked and trashed. where they basically apologized because of the video. this administration's instinct is
